Adobe Premier Pro CS5
We are in Premier Pro CS5, the wonderful new product from Adobe, a 64-bit technology. It would use multi-core, multi-processors take advantage of the CUDA card technology. It’s absolute blazing fast with the new mercury engine. So if you’re new to Premiere, this is the place to be. We are going to take you through how to get up and running very quickly.
So once you start Premiere, it’s going to come to this Flash screen and you are going to have , of course, to choose a new project. So, click on new project. You also have the option to open your projects here and there’s help. So, click on new project in the new project area. You’re going to have options here for Action and Titles Safe Areas. These are different percentages you may want. Video Timecode, how to even display a Timecode, Feet and Frames or just Frames. Audio Samples or Milliseconds. You can capture an HDV or DV and of course, down here, it talks about the Mercury Engine as the renderer. One thing you should do down here is choose a place to save your projects at and you’re able to do that. I have them on my third drive. So, you can have it anywhere. And then, going to the title here and type in whatever you like. New video. And one thing here, is I would just leave all these, with exception of the Capture Format. The rest of them you can leave as default. Never really need change them unless you are working in a film and you use the Feet and Frames etc. Scratch Disks, should be either the same as the project. We have plenty of room on them, on the hard drive or you can change them to a hard drive that will be big enough. You see, you have options to change all that there. And then after, click OK.
Oops, I already have something called that, so, let me change this to 1.
Next, we may come to this screen, where there’s some really cool new things at. This is the settings for your New Sequence scenes. This allows you to set your sequences, how you’re going to cut. So, if you are going to make your film or your project in, say, DV - NTSC, because it is going to go out DVD eventually. You can edit all into that format and down-res your videos, meaning you resize them. But you have a lot of opportunities here for different things and new to CS5 is something tremendous, which is the ability to add Canon DSLR footage natively. And this is the preset for the 1080, p24 frames per second video. As you can see here, it’s for Canon. You see have options for all different 1080, 480 and 720. Also new to this version is Red cam. So you are able to edit Red cam. So if you have a red camera, R3D files, you have your 1080, which is tiny for it, all the way up to 4.5 K. and it works.
The beauty of this, and I will show you in the later video, is you can work in a DV-NTSC timeline in a sequence. Bring in just DV footage but also bring in Canon footage. Bring in Red files, XD cam, any of that will work together. They do not to be pre rendered or anything. It’s the beauty of the mercury engine.
Next tab here, you have your General information, where editing a DSLR-type of video. Here’s all the information you can change to, once again, 2 frames per second etc. Audio, video and you can create your won presets. You can also go into Tracks. Choose 3, the default is 3 tracks of audio, 3 tracks of video. And you can add more if you like and create your own presets once again. So once you’re done with that, you’re just going to click ok and it’ll open Premier and this is the Premier Pro Timeline.
So, let’s start from left to right. We’ve got your Project panel, where we’re going to import video footage or audio or Photoshop files, graphics, whatever you want. This is where it’s all going to be. We are going to go over this in the next video. Resource Central is a great little place to find information. Next to it is the Source panel, where we are going to put our clips that need to be cut in here. We are going to do all our cutting in here. Also in here is the Effects panel. The Audio Mixer and Metadata. Next to that is the program monitor, where we are going to have our video that is being edited in the timeline. Below the program monitor is our timeline. This is where all our sequences are going to be. We are going to put our footage in here. As you can see we have our three tracks as I said earlier and the master track for audio. And this is the current time indicator, which have markers. We are going to go though all of these in the next videos to come.
To the next panel here is the Media Browser, where we can find the media that we’re looking for, search in our home directory or wherever you like, you can find whatever we need.
This is the Info panel. It tells us about what our project is all about.
The Effects panel where we could find audio/video transitions and effects, 32-bit and new is the 64-bit. So we have options here as well.
And then the History panel, where we can see what we have been doing and retract our steps. So it’s all fantastic.
Going back quickly to the project panel down below here is where we create new bins. So, we wanna create a bin like that and type it in the video. That’s where we can put all our video. It’s very important to keep folders so you can be organized.
Next to it is our new button, where we’re going to create a new sequence, a new offline final, a new title, bars and tones and we’re going to do all these in the feature video.
So this is the Premier Pro CS5 user interface. I’m sorry, over here on the far right is our master audio meter, where we could see if our audio and our timeline is peeking or not and we can work on that.
And up on the top left, it used to be down here, is the ability to or are all the tools. So we’ve got the razor tool, zoom tool etc. selection tool. Also all of these are highly customizable. If you want to, if you want your user interface to be like this, you can do that. You can also break these off. If I click here and anywhere that it goes, we’ll create a new, there’s our new area here. And if you get a little too happy doing this and you think you screwed everything up, you can go into the window, workspace, reset current work space and it’ll take you back to the way it was. Looking at that very briefly, we’ve got an audio workspace. If you click on that, you have all your audio mixers here, that’s where you can mix your audio. Color correcting workspace. So here, where the left hand-side is, will be all your effects. You can do color correcting. Here down below is the reference monitor and we’ll get into all that as well. Editing effects and the mega logging. So we’re doing a lot meta information. You can do all that here, meta data. And let’s go back to editing. And that’s it for this first lesson. I just wanted to get you up and going and showing you how do you hold UI work and what they are all about and we’re getting to some more stuff. Importing footage in the next lesson.
